RE: F 250 vs Ram 2500

I kinda think the Ford guys should buy F350s and the Ram guys should buy 3500s. I don't see the point in anybody buying a F250 or 2500 series truck. TRUE but I know someone that will have a RAM 3500 in their Alberta Stable in the future. ;)

RE: After market exhaust brake reliability and effectiveness

I"ve had a Banks brake on my 95 power stroke for 17 years. Still works perfectly. I have bought Banks products in the past. They are very high quality. BUT they are very high cost. There are other products on the market that work just as well.

RE: New Titan tank

^Just kidding! Totally. Someone is bound to say that, though. Happens every time. Figured I'd just gt it out there before someone who actually thinks it's not a good upgrade speaks up. Congrats, ALL big pickups should come with big fuel tanks. I just pack a full 5 when traveling. Needed it once. If I do anything different it will be the 55g Titan.

RE: After market exhaust brake reliability and effectiveness

I've had a PacBrake on my truck for 15 years with no problems at all. That’s who I was going to suggest also. Great customer support.

RE: NEED ADVICE ON NEW TT AND TOWING

That truck you have will pull that particular trailer just fine. Maybe I missed it but how do the rest of us know what truck she already owns?

RE: onan generator synthetic oil filter

Yeah, I've read some not so good things about Royal Purple. I wouldn't use it in my lawn mower. I say stick to the original in Synthetics “AMZ/OIL”

RE: F 250 vs Ram 2500

I said open the HOOD. YIPEE your oil filter has easier access, from below. I simply remove air intake and RnR my oil filter from above. Both of my fuel filters are easy to access. I have owned the 68 RFE and AISIN they are both USMade. Cummins US Made Power Stroke Made in Mexico Cummins doesn’t need 8 or 10 speeds. Think we have beat that subject to death.

RE: Lippert grease fittings

Most likely true. But with drums ya just don’t know.

RE: onan generator synthetic oil filter

As hot as air cooled engines run, especially those inside a sound deadening enclosure, I will never understand the hesitation or reluctance to recommend synthetic oils. They’re not even that much more expensive anymore if you shop wisely. :):)I used synthetic oil in my Onan, for just those reasons. Kinda like using Synthetic in an air cooled Harley. Simply makes sense.

RE: F 250 vs Ram 2500

I don't know if I can justify the payment. I'd like to stay a half ton, but I cannot get the box/cab configuration. So, I am now looking at what will work for me. I know that Cummins recommended a more expensive 3500 with the HO CTD and Aisin, but the price difference between a 3/4 and 1 ton is negligible. I'd get a 1 ton if I could find one, but honestly there is minimal difference between most 3/4 and 1 ton trucks, other than an arbitrary class 2B distinction. In many states you can simply register a 3/4 ton for a higher weight than the 10,000 lbs Class 2B, you just have to pay for the higher weight. But if buying, might as well get the 1 ton and not deal with speculation. Ram 2500 vs 3500: 2500 has coil springs and sway bar and a 3500 has leaf springs and both share the same rear end. Power train the 2500 has less HP and Torque with the less than desirable 68RFE chrysler transmission. Ford F250 vs F350: F350 has a larger spring pack than a F250. The F350 also has a larger read end. Having said that if you get a F250 with a trailer package option then it comes with the same spring pack and rear end as a F350. Power train the F250 and F350 share the same HP and Torque and the same 10 speed transmission. So, 250 vs 2500, and 350 vs 3500 Simply open the hood.

RE: F 250 vs Ram 2500

OP step it up another cog and get a RAM 3500 CUMMINS/AISIN with Factory Rear Air. Loaded and unloaded ride is good and the truck sets nice and level with or without a load. You will want a larger RV and when you do you will thank me you have enough truck to safely handle it. I don't know if I can justify the payment. I'd like to stay a half ton, but I cannot get the box/cab configuration. So, I am now looking at what will work for me. Not that much more to go 3500.

RE: F 250 vs Ram 2500

"“I am thinking of going diesel.” That will cost you payload but depending your trailer it might not matter." That payload argument is a joke as the weight you are adding on a diesel is on the front axle. RV's add very little to the front axle. Reality is it's all about RAW rating and having tonnage to cover your loaded weight.

RE: onan generator synthetic oil filter

I would look at the specs for the Cummins oil filter. Good chance it's made by their filtration Company FleetGuard. It may have synthetic filter media in it. If so it's probably their Stratapore media.

RE: onan generator synthetic oil filter

From the link above. "Cummins does not recommend the use of Synthetic oil in Onan RV generators as there are no long-term benefits for the additional cost." I ran Rotella 15-40 in my 6500 LP Cummins gen and since changed to AMZ/OIL "NON LE" Diesel and Marine 15-40. NOT going to hurt a darn thing.

RE: onan generator synthetic oil filter

I did not know there were "synthetic oil filters". I just use regular oil filters in my vehicles while using synthetic oil. Now I'm off to go look that up! Synthetic filter media VS cellulose is a BIG difference. Donaldson is a good source for top quality filters. They make filters for AMZ/OIL.

RE: F350 SRW Enough Truck

I was referring to my 15 RAM/CUMMINS. My coolant interval is 150k same with valve adjust. I also understand being able to easily work on my engine compared to others. Sorry, when I say "newer" diesels I mean the CP4 diesels, don't know much about Cummins. The official coolant interval per Ford manual is 105K miles I think but people are doing it at 30-50K all in the hope that the engines will last what the old 7.3Ls did. It's become stupid at this point, over maintenance and all but apparently the consensus is that either they work all day every day or if you are a casual pavement princess or low-milage tower, then excess maintenance is in order.... what do I know.... For some unknown reason Cummins went from the CP3 to the CP4 in 2019 & 2020 and back to CP3 2021. It's not an unknown reason - the reason is the excessive amount of CP4 failures. NO, my point was why did they go to the CP4 in the first place. I did attend the TDR May Madness in 2018 when a Chrysler Rep said the reason they were going to the 4 was because they couldn't get enough pressure out of the three with the power upgrades for 2019. That was obviously a "Barbra mStreisand" statement.
